Some initial sketches


It wasn't my forte, though I tried. But if I could have been a good naturalist drawer I think I would have enjoyed that, sitting on a stone in the woods, sketching into charming notebooks. Hokusai, the great Japanese artist was supposedly a bit like that, sketching endlessly.

But it wasn't for me. I didn't really have the flair for it.

Until now! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! I am mad with the power of cheesy photo filters I buy. 

My latest purchase is called graphite, and attempts to simulate drawings, pens, pencils, markers, different papers. You will have seen an occasional photo using this method in the past couple of weeks. But today I thought I'd go all in with black and white sketches chasing after some mild old lost dreams.

While these might not be exactly what I was hoping for when I sat down on a falling tree to sketch in my youth, they might be close enough for me.

Better late than never.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
